I love this idea – where we are constantly driven to become something, we often forget who we are. My music is most certainly a reunion – and my emergence from the safety of our basement to the exposure of the stage has been a long time in the making. I like to use the phrase: Born Into But Brand New. Growing up in Edmonton, AB, I was blessed to be born into a musical family and I remember stories of road trips with Vince Gill & Alan Jackson on the tape deck. As a kid, with the help of our Mom, music was a part of our daily life and it wasn't long before a dream took root. However, the leap from dream to reality was a long way off and, after high school, I branched into pursuing another passion – Aviation – fulfilling an aspiration which I am grateful to share with my Dad: Flying. As an Airline Pilot, my career has taken me all over the country – from the Arctic to the West Coast – providing a view unseen by many. However, the craving for a foundation, a return to family, and that quiet feeling that there is something left undone – has given me a songwriting voice which I have never before experienced. Full circle, I am being drawn back to my roots, to a life in music, and to the storytelling that country provides.
I am just thrilled to be sharing this journey; thank you for being a part.
